This report summarizes the results of the health needs assessment undertaken for the Roanoke City Public Schools. It is divided into four sections. The first section presents system-wide findings for all participating employees. The second section presents findings and comparisons for high schools, middle schools, and elementary schools. The third section presents non-school-site findings for the transportation, maintenance and administration departments of the school system. The fourth section presents implications, suggestions and recommendations. Figures can be found within the body of the text. Tables of school findings can be found in the appendices.

The Roanoke City Health Department and Virginia Tech are pleased to have collaborated with the Roanoke City Public Schools in its efforts to assess the health and well-being of its employees. We look forward to a collaborative relationship as the Roanoke City Public Schools plans health promotion programs to improve the health of its employees. We hope this report will be of value to Roanoke City Public Schools in the development of a health promotion program to meet the needs of employees at each of the administrative divisions and the schools.
